Hi I'm Emily

I'm a gardener, teacher and outdoor enthusiast. I am married. I have eight children and 2 grandchildren. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born in a small town in Utah. I enjoyed the benefits of having a very loving family and community. I loved hiking, exploring and picking cherries and apples from my Grandfathers fruit orchard. I love anything to do with art, music, sustainable living and green energy solutions.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by parents who were members of the church. When I was 8 years old, I decided to be baptized into the church. I was very excited and happy to be baptized because I felt a great desire to live my life in a Christlike way. It felt good to treat others with kindness and I felt that being baptized would be a good way to remember my promise to live a life of peace.

How I live my faith

I am a substitute teacher for elementary age children in our community. I also teach songs to the children in our church congregation each week.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Emily
By being able to identify the emotional needs that motivate people to consider its use. Pornography is a product that has to be perceived as useful before it is likely to be purchased or shared. We also need to consider whether it is the guilt associated with the pornography that people are addicting to rather than the pornography itself. Being able to talk about our emotional needs and then understand how the brain processes emotion can be a first step in helping ourselves and others recover a sense of autonomy over their choices.

In whom should we have faith?

Emily
Faith in God is our prime motivation for all of our actions and beliefs. I believe that our faith in God and in his son Jesus Christ, works interdependently with faith in ourselves and in our fellowbeings. Show more Show less

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

Emily
It can inspire us to develop a balanced and loving way of caring for those people in our close relationships. My faith in Jesus Christ inspires me to open my heart and listen to the thoughts and feelings of my loved ones. Show more Show less
